The symphony is in four movements, marked as follows: (1) Un poco sostenuto â Allegro â Meno allegro, (2) Andante sostenuto, (3) Un poco allegretto e grazioso, (4) Adagio â PiÃ¹ andante â Allegro non troppo, ma con brio â PiÃ¹ allegro.

A very nice performance.
I haven't heard very many performances of this piece. This one is excellent. But I also want to thank Mr. Varney for so many great uploads of music to this site. Mr. V. for your time and effort, I give much thanks. I have spent many an evening listening to these great recordings. It's also saved me from watching the doo doo they try to pass for entertainment on television these days. My pipe, a hot cup of joe, and my four legged companion asleep on my lap, just want you to know how much I appreciate these recordings.
